When installing laminate flooring does the lighting in the room from the windows make a difference in which direction you lay the floor?

Laminate doesn't have to lay counter to the floor joists like traditional tongue and groove wood flooring. Manufactures state to lay the floor so the grain will be running opposite of the major light of the room. Also in narrow rooms you might want to consider that the grain should run the length of the room to help make it look larger.
